U.S. and Korean authorities say they broke up one of the world’s largest markets for #ChildPornography, a crime that is proliferating at a furious pace with the rise of #cryptocurrency and #encrypted online content.
bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
Since agents shuttered the site in March 2018, authorities have arrested 337 site users in 11 countries including the U.K., Germany, Brazil, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, and in more than two dozen U.S. states.
The site, encouraged users to upload videos, included 100s of 1,000s of illicit images not previously seen by authorities. 23 minor victims in the U.S., U.K. and Spain were rescued. They were being actively abused by users of the site, which operated from June 2015-March 2018.

I’ve tweeted about this before but I can’t emphasise it enough. If a boy/man gets an erection whilst being abused. This does not mean consent or enjoyment. I’ve known of professionals telling the parents of a boy (without consulting with the boy) that...

... he got an erection & that if it goes to court the jury will think he wanted it. I’ve known of homophobic parents throwing boys out because parents believed the erection meant the boy was gay....

... I’ve known of therapists helping abused males who got an erection try to come to terms with their sexuality believing that it means he’s gay. We need to understand erections sustained whilst abused & challenge this practice. #Boys #CSE #CSA #Men #Abuse #MaleRape

@wdunlap “Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, #Trump dismissed his past appearances with #Epstein …Epstein’s personal little black book, leaked by an employee in 2009, contained 14 phone numbers for Trump, his wife, Melania, and several people who worked for him.”

@wdunlap “But even beyond #Trump’s own words further up, there’s a good deal of evidence the two were friendly social acquaintances at least through the early 2000s”

“Trump called #Epstein twice in November 2004, according to message pads seized”

1/ #Assange l'avait prédit pendant qu'on le calomniait et qu'on le maltraitait. Il disait que le monde changeait et que les soi-disant démocraties libérales devenaient des #autocraties. Une #démocratie qui envoie sa #police contre les journalistes et emporte leurs notes et

It's 3 am when I'm typing this. A man just flashed me his dick in a fucking ATM! I had gotten down to withdraw money to pay the Rick and was I was facing problems and this guy offered to pay for it but he kept touching me, inside the ATM! I decided to record him and he...
panicked. Luckily there was a cop car, and I showed them the video and they followed him. I don't know if they caught him, but this experience was so scary. It's sick that a man felt that it was okay to flash me inside an atm where there are cameras! When is it going to stop?
It was my birthday, and this is what happens I've always felt that my locality was safe, apparently not.
Please share this.

Okay guys... here we go... wish me luck. #puppetgate #allinarowplay #livetweet #amreading #ActuallyAutistic

Image Description: a copy of the play “All in a Row” lying on a blue pillow.
TW: #puppetgate

Okay, let’s start with the cover. My husband pointed out that the image has three upright cakes neatly lined up and the one blue cake that is fallen over. I assume that since there are four characters, the blue one is the autistic character. Out of place.
TW: #PuppetGate

Next you have big bios of all the cast and crew. Then there’s a two page preface written by Alex Oates and by golly he is TRYING. He uses identity first language (brownie points for that) and tries to explain everything including the puppet.

@McLNeuro @DrAilshire @JMGrohNeuro @sbarolo @hormiga @risss_evans @KKTreseder @SarahEMyhre @batssiki @sbrietz Set up ways to continue dialogue with @NIHDirector & committee–ongoing conversation & input. Action plan before you leave. Also make clear any further delays are unacceptable. Action plans, strong regulations/policies must be instituted immediately. Petition is excellent example.
@McLNeuro @DrAilshire @JMGrohNeuro @sbarolo @hormiga @risss_evans @KKTreseder @SarahEMyhre @batssiki @sbrietz @NIHDirector 1- Many excellent thoughts/suggestions in thread. We thought a list of comments/support/urgency from many sectors may be useful. Concerning that @NIHDirector has not made clear, active efforts to stop #SexualHarassment by @NIH grant holders while @NSF & other orgs have.
@McLNeuro @DrAilshire @JMGrohNeuro @sbarolo @hormiga @risss_evans @KKTreseder @SarahEMyhre @batssiki @sbrietz @NIHDirector @NIH @NSF 2- Why isn’t #SexualHarassment a top #NIH priority. Why the resistance to actively creating strong policies against #SexualHarassment to protect #WomenInMedicine #WomenInScience #WomenInSTEM #WomeninEngineering, even when called out repeatedly by many. What’s the real issue here?

If you have an issue and want to talk about it, that's fine. I am 100% here for it!

However, if you are yelling and calling my wife and I names within a minute, you didn't want to talk. You wanted to put me in line. That's #abuse.
Me having been cautious with you, when you have a history of doing this, isn't a betrayal. Me refusing to put up with it anymore isn't a betrayal.

Refusing to let you hurt and control me isn't a betrayal. Even if you were used to it working on me.
"You did change when you came out as trans after all!" Yeah, I guess I did. I've started to value myself. If that upsets you, that's a you problem.

"You're everything wrong with the trans movement!" Look, if you think not wanting to be yelled at all the time is bad, get help.

10 THINGS MEN CAN DO TO PREVENT GENDER VIOLENCE @threadreaderapp 1. Approach sexual harassment & forms of #gender #violence as a MEN’S issue involving men of all ages & socioeconomic, racial/ ethnic backgrounds. View men not only as possible offenders, but as empowered bystanders
2. DON’T REMAIN SILENT
If someone you know is abusing his partner – or is disrespectful or abusive to girls and women in general – try to talk to him about it. Urge him to seek help. Or if you don’t know what to do, consult a friend. #SpeakUp #BystanderIntervention
3. HAVE THE COURAGE TO LOOK INWARD
Question your own attitudes. Don’t be defensive when something you do or say ends up hurting someone else. Try hard to understand how your own attitudes & actions might inadvertently perpetuate sexism and violence, & work towards changing them.

So, the other thread I was talking about at the beginning of the week and, sadly not about Vagrant Story or Farscape.

One of the questions I see pop-up again and again is why do TE*Fs (note the wildcard placement, there's nothing radical about these #Fuckwits) have such...

hatred for #trans #people?

Well, if we step back a little and change how we look at the patterns of behaviour, and look at those behaviours in a different paradigm, one more associated with personal relationships, TE*F behaviour and attitudes have a depressingly familiar...

pattern to them.

1/ @TheTakeaway @tanzinavega really disappointed you had this guest on a show peddling controversial theories that weaponize the failures of the #criminaljusticesystem #racism and #massincarceration against survivors of #domesticviolence and #coercivecontrol.
2/#VAWAs failures lie not only in its non-holistic, non-systemic approach to addressing #DV—not as #coercivecontrol and not in coordination with child safety risks, as it should be—but also in its methodology, assumptions, implementation etc. @thetakeaway @tanzinavega
3/Just because #VAWA is flawed doesn’t mean you throw the baby out with the bath water. Her theories are dangerous to #survivors and hide its misogynist underpinnings as they center #abuser needs over #survivor and #child #safety, #stability #strength. @TheTakeaway @tanzinavega

@girlsrituals 1/ Zucker repeatedly diverts attention from the core problems with what he pushes globally as the way to (mis)treat pre-pubertal GNC & trans children, which is plain abuse (ignoring or breaking vital boundaries), of thousands, over decades, & ongoing. He paints himself as the…
@girlsrituals 2/…victim, he manipulates others into being complicit & has them act in in his defence, he uses legal threats at the drop of a hat, he uses his editorships, he even claims that only #ReparativeTherapy against sexual orientation is unethical, despite Toronto law saying otherwise
@girlsrituals 3/ Unfortunately the Hinkle complaint, serious as it was, was, as it so often the case by the very nature of events, without corrobation, so Zucker was able to use it to threaten, & divert, again.

We desperately need his disbelief dogma gone from trans paediatric care globally…

1) @SaRaAshcraft or @FionaBa47662575 maybe someone can give me some insight. I recently was talking to my sister, shes the one who got me studying #SRA and the possibility of it influencing our past
2) she told me about an incident she had recently remembered after moving out of the house at 16 and having gotten a new phone # that nobody had.
3) shortly after getting this new number she started getting strange calls. A man with an evil intonation would call and harass her, call her terrible names. She had only recently remembered this happening, but at the time it was terrifying.

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it - ukcoverup.com/search-warrant-

#skynews #lbc #theresamay #uk #bbcnews #coverup #c4news #worldnews #ukgov
Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here ukcoverup.com/arrest-details as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?
